Marius Goring Excellent in "The Scarlet Pimpernel"
What a pleasure to hear Marius Goring again in "The Scarlet Pimpernel." They were then, probably, either just imported from England or were reruns in this country. The listener, in order to appreciate this program, should have some knowledge of the French Revolution (late 1700's) and the efforts of Englishmen to save those in France (and the European continent)from being killed by their countrymen. Marius Goring, in England, plays an unlikely individual who no one would suspect would be capable of taking on the role of rescuing potential Frenchmen and women facing having their heads separated from their bodies. This program requires the full attention of the listener to follow the plot lines.
